Team Model


 

Authority

 

  Our team is made up of four members and each of us has equal responsibilities and authorities over the project. We agreed that when conflicts arise we will objectively discuss each of the options and talk openly about the pros and cons and see what is in the best interest of the project.  If need be we will put issues to a vote and move forward with the majority vote.  In the event that there is a tie we decided that we refer to what the professor recommended we do.  The team chose to follow this tactic as we believe that such a model is ideal to be used on small projects when all the members show the same willingness and devotion over the project. Therefore we assigned equal authority and responsibility to all members.

 

Meetings

 

The communication tool to be used for our meetings is Skype. There is not a predetermined schedule for meetings, but usually two meetings will take place every week. The main meeting will be during the weekends. The team will decide the exact date and time by using Doodle (http://doodle.com) to poll the group members and determine what time is best. We will also have minor meetings during week days; those meetings won’t be mandatory and the decision upon the necessity of those will be taken upon our main meetings. The time and date, once again, will be agreed by using Doodle. Since there are two main deliverables we will likely meet more frequently as due dates get closer and likely won't meet as often in between deliverables.  

 

At the beginning of every meeting a team member will be appointed to lead the meeting and another to keep notes on what is being discussed. During the meetings we will analyze the work that has been done so far and provide feedback if needed. In addition, we will set goals and due dates for additional deliverables as the project progresses.  In order to have time to review the deliverables before team meetings, the due dates will be set for at least 24 hours prior to the next meeting.  If a member is running into problems delivering something by the appointed date they are to inform the group and reach out if additional help is needed. 

 

Project Deliverables

 

All deliverables will be first posted to the team collaboration site when completed at least a day prior to the meeting.  This will allow the group to have one location to view and obtain documents and also to write notes and comments on each deliverable.  Members are to provide feedback on each deliverable and if there are no suggestions for improvement they must note that they are fine with the deliverable as is.  Once a deliverable is revised and cleared by the group it will be uploaded to the wiki.  This is to make sure that all members are focused on one location rather than being confused as to update the wiki or the files on the collaboration site.

 

Communication:

 

Our main communication tools will be Teambox and Skype as described above. But we will also use emails and personal phones when direct communication will be needed. The basic rule will be that each member has to respond on emails no longer than 24 hours; if there will be a personal issue which won't allow a team member to communicate with the team, that team member must inform the team the soonest possible. The same rule applies for replaying on the collaboration tool.

 

 

Collaboration Tools


Our main collaboration tool will be Teambox, which offers functionality for discussion, team communication, task management, note posting and file sharing.  Teambox also provides a dashboard in which the latest news are published with reminders for all uncompleted tasks remaining.  The team can also set and assign tasks with due dates which will be utilized when assigning different deliverables to various team members as well as giving them applicable due dates.

Products Being Reviewed In Detail


Given the extensiveness of the above list our group wanted to narrow down the list so we could look at 5 sites in greater detail (which given the timeline of the class is not possible for the entire above list).  The group looked at reviews online as well as brief tours of the tools above to determine what 5 looked to be the best.  The 5 the group decided were to be looked at in greater detail are the ones listed below:
